Letter Requesting Increased Funding for the Office of Refugee Resettlement in FY14

We, the undersigned humanitarian, human rights, faith-based, and refugee-serving organizations and leaders, write to ask you for your leadership to ensure robust funding for the Labor, Health, and Human Services FY14 bill. Specifically, we would like to call your attention to funding for the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program through the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). A lack of additional funding this year for ORR would compromise America’s ability to provide vital services and protection for the vulnerable people we welcome into our communities.
